Global Warfare: Is the US/NATO Going to Attack Russia?
Guest suggestion: Benjamin Ferencz is 96 years old and the last surviving prosecutor from the Nuremberg Trials. He is still very sharp, and has been a leader for decades in calling for universal jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court to end impunity for war crimes and crimes against humanity. His ideas represent common sense, and, evidenced by this interview, urgent and timely. Mr. Ferencz's website is BenFerencz.org, the information there free for any person to use as he/she wishes - even up to "plagiarizing" - according to Mr. Ferencz. The dangerous situation today combined with historical experience where millions of lives have been shattered because of non-prosecuted actions of war criminals make Mr. Ferencz a powerful potential guest. It would be interesting to hear his opinion on a possible United Nations reform making it mandatory for UN member states to choose agreement on joining the ICC or face forced expulsion from the international organization. Even the United States, one of the nations still not under ICC jurisdiction, would understand the negative consequences from leaving the UN because it wanted to continue making wars of aggression with impunity - in particular loss of reputation around the Earth and economic losses. Such a reform at the UN once established offers humanity its best chance for minimizing or virtually ending war. As Mr. Ferencz says, "Law Not War".
The USA is playing dangerous game with the Russian Bear by sending its ships to Russian shores. Russia in its turn responds hard http://edition.cnn.com/2017/02/16/us/russia-us-ship-fly-by/index.html Accident with American ship will immediately trigger WWIII just like it happened in 1898 when the USA declared war on Spain after the USS Maine sunk in Havana Harbor. The scenario was repeated in 1964. So called The Gulf of Tonkin incident led to direct engagement of American troops in Vietnam war. The Hawks want the war. NATO soldiers will be cannon fodder, Europe will turn into the battlefield. And then American heroes will come to save the world again. Do we the Europeans want this future?
